La Paz, the laidback Baja California Sur capital, draws visitors from around the world with an array of eco-tourism attractions to please lovers of nature and the great outdoors.

With access to around 900 islands, including the chalk-white Isla Espiritu Santo islands in the Bay of La Paz, this is the place for whale-watching, swimming, snorkeling and diving.

Take a day cruise, or try your hand at fishing, sailing and kayaking from the world-class marinas. Meet the local animals at bio reserves, including all manner of reptiles from turtles to iguanas at the Serpentarium.

Museums chart the history of the peninsula, from cave paintings to the Cortez and colonial mission architecture. La Paz is also a gourmet’s paradise, and a great place to indulge a passion for Mexican food.

Practical Info

La Paz is on the southern tip of the Mexican peninsula, around 140 miles (225 km) or a 3-hour drive north of Los Cabos.

The city sits on the famed Bay of La Paz, and enjoys mild winter temperatures and moderated summer highs thanks to the afternoon sea breeze.
